A Slipping Down Life-The Movie
I discovered after I read Ann Tyler's novel that a movie based on the book was produced in 1999. Starring Lili Taylor as Evie Decker, A Slipping Down Life doesn't follow the book exactly, but one important element is included - Evie works in the local library. Two scenes take place in the library, which seems to be bigger than one might expect in the small town where she lives. In neither case was the setting integral to the story. They were simply conversations that could have taken place anywhere.
